Rihanna On Cover Of MAY 2020 British Vogue: In A Durag?

BadGalRiri stars on the second of two special covers for the May 2020 issue – debuting the first durag on a cover of #BritishVogue. From sparking a beauty revolution with her billion-dollar @FentyBeauty empire to orchestrating industry-defining, inclusive catwalks,a  Rihanna shows no signs of stopping.
The singer appears in Vogue fashion magazine wearing a  style of dress of black power.
She made history, as she becomes the first woman to appear on the cover of British Vogue wearing a durag.
Editor-In-Chief of Vogue Edward Enninful revealed on his Instagram page “that it was Rihanna’s idea to wear the head-wear, which was designed by the famed milliner Stephen Jones. “For this month’s shoot, she wanted Rihanna for a new decade,” he said. “We worked through a substantial archive of visual references (her fashion and cultural knowledge is encyclopaedic) to find a new proposition,” he explained. “Then suddenly, at 2am, my phone pinged with the latest WhatsApp: ‘How about we go with a durag?’”

The May 2020 issue of British Vogue was created prior to the pandemic which has subsequently brought the world almost to a halt. Meanwhile, they couldn’t imagine a better cover star than @BadGalRiri, an advocate for tolerance whose rallying cry has redefined every industry she’s turned her hand to, and whose generous spirit saw her make a $5 million donation to fight Covid-19 with her @ClaraLionelFdn earlier this month. In the new issue the multi-hyphenate talks to @AfuaHirsch about her forthcoming album, her desire to become a mother and why she won’t be pinned down. See the full story in the new issue, on newsstands and available for free digital download Friday 3 April,
